Great Scenes – BUDDHA’S PALM
Director Taylor Wong brings you Buddha’s Palm (1982) – the lighter side of insanity – a heady concoction of the greatest things film has to offer: the lovely Kara Hui, exploding heads, melted faces, dueling wizards, a telescoping-limb “foot-monster,” bad English subtitles, a symbiotic kung-fu giant and a white haired, puss-spewing midget (known as the “Dragon Tumor Duo”), and your standard issue high-wire shenanigans and neon lightning bolts drawn directly onto the celluloid. And that’s within these 4 and a half minutes (!) I’ve selected, so you can imagine what the rest of the flick is like. Try hard not to watch the scene over and over again – it may adversely affect you.
